Work starts on 140 metre Espen Oeino designed superyacht Victory at Fincantieri

    
Wednesday, 1 September 2010

Today, at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Muggiano (La Spezia), work commenced on the construction of the mega yacht ordered from Fincantieri at the end of last year. Introduced by Camper & Nicholsons International, one of the world’s leading brokerage companies in the mega-yacht market, who will represent the Client throughout the construction.

Based on a new, unique concept which is the brainchild of the Monaco based naval design architect Espen Oeino and the Paris based interior designer Alberto Pinto, the project Victory has been developed by the Fincantieri Yachts team - the unit specifically devoted to this business area within the Fincantieri Group - to meet the requirements of the owner in full.

Project Victory has been designed, and will be built, to meet SOLAS regulations (the International Convention on Safety of Life at Sea) and will be one of the world’s most advanced vessels in terms of safety on board. The new mega yacht will have everything an owner may wish for since it embodies high technological content, close attention to detail in her interior furnishings and expertly crafted décor. In short, a top-of-the range yacht for quality and performance with 7 decks, 6 pools of up to 8 metres long and an internal floodable dock for a 14-metre tender. Great attention will be given to implementing environmentally friendly solutions. There is no doubt that when she is delivered the project Victory will be one of the world’s most – and possibly the most – technically advanced mega yachts in the world.

Giovanni Romano, head of Fincantieri Yachts, commented: “This mega yacht is the start of another ‘adventure’ which proves we were right to enter this area of the market, an exclusive niche where we set out to base our success both on product quality and the efficiency of our construction process. Today, drawing on our experience with our first mega yacht and having further refined our expertise in managing complex processes, we are in a position to guarantee excellent performance levels thus meeting the needs of a market which, we trust, is on the road to recovery”.

The shipyard is currently completing their first mega yacht, Hull No. 6154. At 134 metres long, she will be launched in the next few weeks and delivered to the owner by the end of the year.
